Altesino Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 1999
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine SpectatorLots of plum and dried fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a very fruity finish. A rich wine that still needs bottle time. Best after 2006. 1,500 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastBegins with a light touch of raisin, while the mouth feels soft, albeit a touch tannic. Further inspection unveils a deeper, meatier side, but also a touch of stewed fruit. Finishes solid, with coffee and chocolate as well as a medicinal hint. Imported by Winebow.
